Audio Show East

For those interested Audio show east is Nov 2nd and 3 rd which is only a few weeks away if those that live outside of the east Anglia want and need to plan a trip. I am sure Richard and Signals will post something pretty soon, but those interested can look at the Signals site for the latest exhibitors. I thoroughly enjoyed it last year...others who have been to the big events are better able to compare. And it’s free....voluntary charity contribution last year. Anyway, more for those who would have to plan a trip.

If a few Forumites end up going, maybe we should try to meet up at the show and maybe ask the organiser to have some blank badges so we can show our Forum names.

Any interest?

BTW, last year's show was excellent but I failed to meet up with any from the Forum because I simply don't know what you look like!

It has been suggested that I should wear my favourite red Fez, but there must be a more discreet way!

Well I am up for that , but for those that know Signals they punch way above their weight. It’s a brilliant dealership for a number of brands.....but it’s not a big chain. I am amazed that Alistair and Andy....do this each year. 

I think we should do this ourselves, a self adhesive label......I bet people don,t bother. So to add this complexity is not going to happen,

I will wear a badge......hope some forum members will, but asking Signals is too much.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How difficult is it for Signals to bring some blank name badges, put them in a box labeled 'Naim Forumites' at the reception desk, that we hand back as we leave. All Forumites who sign up to meet will know to pick one up and write their Forum name on it.

If there is no organisation, it will be just like last year. Us all promising to meet up and then rubbing shoulders and failing to identify each other.

Who knows, Signals may just pick up an order (or two) for an ND555, if they get a Forum gathering!

If I were Signals I would be all over this idea to get an many devoted Naimees at this event as possible, many in buying (or at least considering) mode in relation to new streamers, me included.

If they can organise such a wonderful event, why would organising a few blank name (Naim?) badges trip them up?

Nick,

Is it humanly possible to multi-task to the extent of managing to do both coffee (I'd love to try it by the way) and name badges at the same event?

Best regards, FT

FT, not sure that I am 'allowed' to do the coffee at Trinity Park; nothing to do with Signals, simply the terms of the hire, I believe. If you would like a bag or 2 of coffee then I am happy to bring some. Let me know nearer the time. I will drop you an email.

To kill this one, I will bring a roll of sticky labels and pen and leave at the signing in desk......you sign in for the event to enter the raffle. Might be quite special as it’s the 25 th of Signals.....worth doing was a Muso QB last year. I never win anything so that improves your odds.

Crikey, I've just 'bean' tipped off on this  Thanks for the thread Gazza!

First off, our trusty coffee supplier has offered to do some badges with Roastery 112 printed on them. Let's call then Naim Tags

This year, the eventbrite ticket will also form the free draw ticket, so please bring it along. Also, Forum Member tickets will be marked so that those on the front desk will know to give you the Naim Tag too. 

The link to the eventbrite page is on audioshoweast.com

Since Naim will be there, I'm sure they will put a proper link on here at some point.

Knew you guys could do it. Looking forward to being there and meeting some Forum members. Also looking forward to hearing the ND555, surely tipped to be the star of the show.

And Gazza, it seems I won't need my Fez this year!

A change to our holiday plans happily means I will now be able to attend at least the Friday. I feel a little guilty attending for 2 years in a row, yet still not having given Signals any business to date. That situation could easily change however as I still have half an eye on Kudos Titans of one sort or another and at the very least I’ll need a Muso or QB for my new kitchen soon...

look forward to meeting some more forum members there!

I'll hopefully be going on Saturday. Yet to negotiate the passout.

Remember, for those Forumites going who want to be identified as such and want to meet other Forumites, there will be special name tags at reception for you to write your forum name on. Just note on the online booking you are a Forumite. 

I went last year and failed to meet any Forumites - no way of identifying you.

And no, I don't actually sport a Fez but am just as ugly as my comedy hero.

That is one of the reasons I love Tommy's comedy. He never swore, was never crude, sometimes rather silly (which I love) and always very funny. With the exception of one of his series on ITV, to me the man was a comedy genius.

He's no looker though, which was part and parcel of his charm.

RIP Tommy, you are missed.
